    The first one of three layers of acrylic ink (flesh tint 326) before weathering. The seats had received a layer from black color and are ready for weathering.

    I truly enjoy scratch building and you have shown me a few more tricks I had not tried before, such as the layered MG. I have always done it out of plastic, tubing and wood. Thank you for the tips. I am waiting with anticipated breath for the finished project.

    Strength and honor.

    Another layer of white glue. After a dry well, applied a layer of:
    brown van dyck (337)
    yellow skin (326)
    orange, cadmium (325)

    I do not know the exact proportion of each color, I was mixing up to a color between the orange and dark beje. I would imitate the tone of Kubels of Afrika korps.

    For the aging body of Kubel, a layer of black acrylic paint diluted with water in proportion of 2 parts of ink to 1 with water.
    Apply the paint and hope about 20 seconds, then remove the excess with a dry cloth, without very careful to give an impression of worn by the time, or like an ancient painting job.

    Hello, 4x4paper

    You are right. The fenders are a problem. The truth is that: when I decided to mount this Kubel my intention was to make it simplest possible, without scratchbuild, painting or anithing, but during the assembly of the parts I was observing the possibilities of the model.
    Already it had mounted fenders and I left as it was.

    Perhaps I make a sandpaper work in them and disguise from above part with something as Jerry cans. Thank you for your commentary, if you did not have post it, I would not remember about the fenders.

    Greetings from Brazil!!!

    Second layer. j' used plastic ink in the place d' acrylic ink and the result was a pity. J' will have qu' it will decide this in third layer.

    Third layer with black acrylic ink diluted in water. Still it n' was not good. In the close relation I get to fix it, I guess.

    [​IMG]

    Tried out a rolled canvas, to disguise the bumper, which n' was not very round.

    I collected a piece of paper a little hard and l' rolled in foam E.U.A., moored well extremely where it wanted to leave marked and then wet the paper. After dryness it remained in the format that I imagined.
